Ah crap. I can't get my 11 year old Toyota serviced anywhere. Now what's I to do eh?

On the plus side, all Vauxhall garages now seem to be authorised to work on Monaros, rather than the original 10. rolleyes

Good old Shell. I e-mailed them to ask about this service... About 3 days ago! Not had any reply!
AND they've put the fuel up at my local garage by 2p/litre. frown

Amusingly, adverts for this service are now appearing on PH hehe Should we be surprised that nobody at Shell has read this thread?

It came up with £175-£220 for major service for our MX-5. I have just had this done for about £150 at our local independent garage who I trust implicitly.

Dear PHers,

Thank you for your valuable feedback. The Shell Car Servicing Network is an online referral system which is intended to help both motorists who find it confusing to navigate the car servicing world and also to support some of our franchise workshop customers with an outlet to offer their services through.

At this early stage of the launch of the service, and as the network coverage continues to grow, availability for some manufacturers may be limited in certain parts of the country.
We are working hard to increase coverage and include more participants from Shell's franchise dealer network in the Shell Car Servicing Network.

The dealers have full control over the prices they offer on the website and Shell does not engage into any pricing decisions or discussions and is completely neutral to this process in order to ensure transparency and allow motorists to make the decision of choosing a dealer at their own discretion.

We value your comments and suggestions for improvements and are well aware of the level of collective expertise and car knowledge which is manifested in this forum.

If you require any further details regarding this service, send us feedback at contactus@carservicing.shell.co.uk.

Best Regards
The Shell Car Servicing Network Team
